submitted on May 7, 2010 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"

Archos on Thursday officially announced their upcoming Android-powered tablet, the Archos 7. Running a custom version of Android 1.6 on a seven inch widescreen display, the new device is slated for launch this May 17 at a low $200 price point.
With the ARCHOS 7 home tablet, users will always be in touch with the world around them through easy access to information services such as news, weather and local business directories. The video player software provides a great movie and YouTube™ viewing experience.
With built-in Wi-Fi, the ARCHOS 7 home tablet can easily be connected to a home network, while the built-in USB connection makes transferring files from a PC or a USB stick simple.

    Here is the BIG issue with this gadget:

    While the full Android Market won’t be available on the device, Archos is bundling their own (much smaller) AppsLib store for downloading additional apps.

    Granted, iPad's marketplace is still relatively small too but it is growing fast backed by full Apple's support, which is not the case with AppLib
